Messongi (Messonghi) is a beach on the east coast of Corfu
, 23 km from the capital of the island. It is next to Moraitika
but both are separated by a river which flows into the sea and divides the beach strip into two parts, as the south part is called Messongi and the north part - Moraitika.
Messongi has developed as a small resort with hotels, guesthouses, tavernas and beach bars. In contrast to Moraitika, where all shops and services are along the main road, in Messongi everything is around the beach - one bakery, one super market and a small shop for souvenirs, and overall the resort is calmer.
The beach of Messongi is narrow but long and sandy, with calm water and gradually sloping seafloor. There are a few beach bars with sunbeds and parasols, water sports, center for diving lessons and organized boat trips. A coastal road connects Messongi with the tranquil beach of Boukari
where you can find fish taverns.
